Unwanted side effects of roads are invasive species

Science Spotlights Posted on: October 22, 2015
Resource managers are using burning and thinning treatments more and more in western forests to manage the infestation of insects and disease as well as to reduce wildfire hazards. Unfortunately, these treatments can trigger the invasion and spread of invasive plants, which can thwart restoration efforts. A recently published, long-term Forest Service study conducted at the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest (TCEF) in Montana helps shed some light on the spread of invasive plants.

Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest 15 minute streamflow data: 2000-2009

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains 15 minute stream flow rates (cubic feet per second) for 11 flumes in the upper Tenderfoot Creek watershed from 2000 to 2009. Two sub watersheds: Sun Creek and Spring Park Creek had experimental shelterwood harvests in 1999 and 2000. Portions of these units were prescribed burned between 2001 and 2003. Two adjacent subwatersheds: Bubbling Creek and Stringer Creek serve as controls.

Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest stream sediment collection: 1994-2009

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains daily average sediment transport data for several creeks in the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest watershed from 1994 to 2009. Sediment data were collected at eight sites in the upper Tenderfoot Creek watershed. Four samplers were placed at the bottom of four sub-watersheds flowing into Tenderfoot Creek.

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains average 15 minute streamflow data from September 2000 to September 2015 for 11 gauges located in the upper Tenderfoot Creek watershed on the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest. These data include streamflow measurements in multiple locations on Tenderfoot Creek and seven major sub-watersheds flowing into the Tenderfoot Creek drainage.

Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest fluvial sediment transport data

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains average daily sediment transport data recorded at eight locations in the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest watershed from 1994 to 2014. Four sediment samplers were placed at the bottom of four sub-watersheds flowing into Tenderfoot Creek. These sub-watersheds are Spring Park Creek, Sun Creek, Stringer Creek and Bubbling Creek.

Disturbance history of the Medicine Bow Range, Wyoming, using historical documents, contemporary forest inventory, and lake sediment cores

In the late 1860s, Euro-American settlement and related activities, including logging, began affecting the composition and structure of forests of the western United States. These impacts were likely to be most substantial along the corridor of the trans-continental railroad.
